Wolf Tooth Valais Dropperpost Stanchion Protection

Wolf Tooth Valais Dropperpost Stanchion Protection

In order to allow saddle bag mounting on dropper posts, the Wolf Tooth Valais mounts to the seatpost upper tube, providing a secure mounting point while protecting the stanchion from wear and the wiper seal from damage. Injection molded from an engineering-grade thermoplastic, the Valais can also serve as a temporary crutch in the event of a backcountry dropper failure. The dual-lip design securely holds packs with straps up to 25mm wide and at full compression the deep skirt contacts the seal collar first, protecting delicate seals from damage.

Features:
  • shifts cargo to the bike: Small- and mid-sized saddle packs are ideal places to securely store tubes, mini tools, and CO2 cartridges, ensuring that they are always on hand when needed while freeing up the top tube and handlebar bags for more regularly-accessed items.
  • Protects seatpost: Inexpensive insurance, the Valais 25 protects dropper post stanchions from the wear that occurs at the intersection of saddle bag, seatpost, and wheel-flung grit.
  • Emergency Crutch: While dropper posts continue to improve, locking mechanism failure still occurs- often far from the trailhead. The Valais can be used to keep posts extended, allowing the rider to comfortably pedal out of the backcountry.
  • Raceday Travel Limiter: When seven inches is more than terrain calls for, the Valais can be used to limit dropper travel to suit.


Compatibility:
  • in principle any dropper post
  • note that discrete position droppers will likely lose the lowest position because the Valais reduces the dropper travel by 25mm
